talentflow: Management Assessment
Why did organisations that only employed the ‘best’ and ‘smartest’ talent, apparently act so stupidly and lead us to the brink of financial disaster in 2008?
Did sophisticated innovation seem a good idea at the time?
Could we have spotted the signs, asked more questions, used more common sense?
talentflow Assessment can help you:
• Spot the signs, ask the questions, address the behaviours
• Maximise the return on the investment in individuals and teams
• Promote more aware questioning and critical thinking in key areas

Tim has provided outplacement and organisational development support to me during my time with Benfield and subsequently at Starr Underwriting. He has always been able to provide meaningful advice and guidance across a wide cross section of challenging circumstances and I have no hesitation in recommending him.
Interim Group Human Resources Director
The whole thing was a bit of a cultural exploration so I believe we learned: Preferred styles of working compared with critical reasoning ability is not always aligned, Challenging assumptions is a difficult thing to become skilled at, Working collaboratively is key – and listening / hearing is vital.
IT Director – Broking
He is a great sounding board and can remove himself from any situation to take a very objective view on matters. He has a refreshing, down to earth, no nonsense approach and I’m sure he would be of value to the individual cells and their development.
Head of Line Syndicate Underwriter (internal recommendation)
Tim Hurst has over 20 years of experience coaching across a range of business sectors which include Insurance, Information Technology; Professional Qualifications Bodies, Formula 1 Racing, Manufacturing, Sales and Distribution, Specialist Health Authorities, Retailing and Recruitment.
Tim frames his coaching support with both the business need and individual characteristics in mind. Often starting with detailed psychometrics to establish a baseline, he builds rapport and adopts different approaches, some directive, some reflective to achieve the agreed aims. He is always supportive, but will never shy away from a reality check.

Non-threatening, down to earth, his style reflects the experiences of a diverse career in HR which taught him to be surprised by nothing. Tim is very experienced in dealing with entrenched and sometimes challenging behaviours, management inexperience, conflict, and dysfunctional teams. He also has extensive senior level career management experience which, being akin to coaching, requires resilience, tact, and flexibility.
As a very experienced user of psychometric instruments, Tim is concerned to balance the jargon and technicalities with common sense and context. He deals with resistance and barriers with a mixture of good humour and focused clarity. Enthusiastic engagement with, and honest feedback from his clients, is prized.
Tim is a qualified, registered test user and member of the British Psychological Society, a long standing CEB-SHL Premier Partner and a 30 year member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. In 2012 he was admitted (by experience) as a full member to the Association for Coaching, a leading independent, and not-for-profit professional body dedicated to promoting best practice.
Tim’s goal is to remain a consultant who operates in the real world…
